Purpose

Enables Life Scientists to Communicate Their Research Clearly and Effectively

 

Participants Learn How To:

  • Apply five key principles of scientific writing.
  • Write for their readers.
  • Construct a memorable “take-home message”.
  • Connect all parts of their paper in a flowing narrative.
  • Overcome writers’ block.
  • Structure their paper for increased impact.
  • Use the writing process to inform their own research.
  • Understand the role of “story telling” in scientific writing.

 

Our Teaching Approach:

  • Encourages participants to see “the big picture” of their research.
  • Uses discussions, exercises and homework to underscore key-points.
  • Equips participants with writing tools rather than burdening them with writing rules.
  • Includes editing of participants’ Abstracts and follow-up one-to-one consultation.
  • Includes class discussions that facilitate an understanding of the writing process; encouraging interaction and the sharing of writing experiences.
  • Creates an informal atmosphere that motivates students to enjoy writing.

 

Science Craft’s Distinctive Advantage:

  • An easy-to-use book that guides the students through all levels of scientific writing from the fundamentals of word choice to the overall structure of the paper.
  • Instructors are native English-speaking scientists with over 20 years of scientific writing, editing and publishing experience in high-ranking scientific journals.
  • To mark the launch of our manuscript editing service, we offer a 50% discount on editing of participants’ first-author manuscripts within two months of the course.

The presenters appear really professional and provided a very comforting and productive atmosphere.

Makes good points and gives a very good, analysed insight into the structure of the texts and structuring one’s own writing.

I think it was very precise, compact, interactive and useful. Rick is a great teacher.

I enjoyed learning many new helpful tricks and will put more effort into my writing!

It is really useful to attend.
